Smoky Seafood Lemon Linguine #seafood #pasta

So many of my loyal followers might think I have been kidnapped by visiting aliens by the desertion of new recipes I haven’t been posting unless you follow me on Instagram. Then you know I have been busy teaching at a culinary summer camp for kids for the…
This pasta is a balance of smoky and fresh flavors. The mint and lemon add freshness which mute the smoky, salty seafood flavor in this to subtlety.

Jicama Salad with Roasted Green Tomato-Lemongrass Dressing #salad #saladdressing #thaifood #thaiinspired

This week’s BM theme is fruits that are used as vegetables. While there are many, I think the most common is the tomato. When some of my local BM friends and I visit a local UPICK farm we like to visit, we love going during tomato season. The farm fresh…

with coconut milk, this biryani is not to be missed
 
This flavourful, spicy soy chunks biryani is baked in oven after layering rice and soy chunks gravy and topped with coconut milk. This is so good with just a simple onion raitha at the side. http://gayathriscookspot.com/2016/06/layered-soy-chunks-biryani-recipe/
For the final day of rice dishes, I needed to make a layered rice dish. There are so many ways of making a layered rice. You can either bake it in oven or cook it over stove top and you can either …

Summer Fruit Gazpacho #gazpacho #soup #seasonaleating

It’s been hot and humid with temperatures in the 90’s for almost 2 weeks. We only got our first reprieve yesterday. It’s been unbearably HOT and cooking is the last thing on anyone’s mind. I finally finished an intense job I had for 4 weeks that forced me…
that meant gazpacho - a no heat recipe is perfect for the weather. I added some of the seasonal summer fruit for this fruity gazpacho and some mild chile peppers for a slight spicy aftertaste.

Jackfruit Honey Bread #wholegrains

This month’s #BreadBakers challenge was to use no refined sugar hosted by Mayuri. I decided to use honey. This is a simple tea bread that is perfect with your morning cup of java. The original intention was to use banana, but then a late night mishap had…

Spiced Duck & Vegetable Stir Fry #asianfood #lowcalorie #healthy #duck

This is the very first duck recipe I’ve posted. However, I like duck a lot. Duck a l’Orange is probably the most popular duck recipe internationally. Except for once when I was in culinary school, that is not the most common duck preparation in my mind.…

Fried Okra Salad #salad #friedokra #southernfood

Fried okra is a classic dish from southern American cuisine. While they are delicious, they are high in calories due to the deep fried batter that surrounds the okra. Add some balance to fried okra but combining it with a fresh salad. I came back from the…

This is the best supermarket in the NYC for Latin American food products - every type of Peruvian pepper paste you can imagine. A large variety of cremas and cheeses from all over Latin America including Ecuadorian Cayembe, my fave. Dried blue corn for making Peruvian Chica Morado or Mazamorra, plantain flour, plantain leaves, lucuma, blue corn tortillas. large selection of dried and fresh chiles and a great produce section. Gallina - hard fowl and the list goes on. Any ingredient you need for Latin cooking can be found here

This restaurant is the kind of place you want to come back to again and again. With a small bar and only about 28 seats, it has a neighborhood feel to it. If I lived in the area, it's definitely a place I would stop by on my way home from work for a quick beer and pleasant conversation with locals. The food is amazing. Portion size is perfect. Ample, but not oversized like many American eating establishments. Traditional Columbian food - the shrimp ceviche is definitely a must and they have a wide selection of South and Central American beers - Tona, a Nicaraguan lager was so refreshing on a hot summer day. It's bright and crisp, with no bitterness at all. Of course, being a Columbian restaurant, they also have lots of coffee based drinks and to end your meal, the tres leches cake is perfect - not too sweet and not too wet, it's the best version I've ever had.
